bushfire kitchen / carlsbad, ca

Up in Carlsbad, there’s a cool new restaurant called Bushfire Kitchen that’s serving up cafeteria-ish style food. It’s a similar concept to Tender Greens or new the Lemonade that’s opened up recently in San Diego (post forthcoming) – except you order your food and they deliver it to your table. Recently I was invited to come in and check out Bushfire Kitchen for myself.

Bushfire Kitchen is in the southern part of Carlsbad, around La Costa. It’s inside a shopping plaza, …

bagatelle cafe & bistro

Bagatelle Cafe & Bistro is one of the newer restaurants to open up recently in the Miramar area. I love it when new places open up around my office – it gives me new foods to try! Bagatelle Cafe is in the same strip mall as SuperNatural Sandwiches and they serve French-American food for breakfast and lunch. I’ve been a few times and feel I can now properly assess them.

fat choy / las vegas, nv
August 19th, 2015 Las Vegas, Mary, Travel mary 2 Comments

Back in 2012, my friends and I went to a little place inside of a hair salon (yes, you read that right) called Great Bao. They were kicked out of the salon shortly after our visit and I’ve kept tabs on them over the years. When we decided to go to Vegas again, I tried to see if they got a new location and I was very happy to see them up and running in a proper restaurant under a …

the grove grinder

The Grove Grinder is one of those little places we’ve passed by so many times without ever actually going in. One recent weekend it was finally time for us to check out this little building and see what it was all about.

The Grove Grinder is across the street from the GTM store and about a stone’s throw away from the Giant Lemon. You can see it on a side street if you’re driving up Broadway towards the lemon. It looks …

funky fries and burgers
July 20th, 2015 El Cajon, Mary, San Diego County mary 8 Comments

On Saturday, Jake and I went out for a bite to eat at a brand-spankin’ new spot in El Cajon called Funky Fries and Burgers. We managed to get their BEFORE the torrential rain started (though we got stuck in it later after we went to Parkway Plaza). I found it over on Yelp. There was a video on Yelp showing a basket of fries with two eggs on top and gravy being poured over the top. I showed the video …

a-chau vietnamese sandwiches

Taking a break from all of those desert posts to tell you about some FOOD I actually ate recently. Vietnamese food to be exact! Most of the time I only seem to eat Vietnamese food around Mira Mesa but I was down in Jake’s ‘hood and needed a bite to eat. Jake was doing the Little League thing and I was on my own to grab something before his game started. I decided to go and check out A-Chau which …

new york on rye

New York on Rye is a new deli shop that opened up in Miramar. New York on Rye originally started as just a food truck and has now expanded into their own space in addition to the food truck. They opened up just a few weeks ago in a spot that has been quite a few different iterations of deli’s (Top Bun, The Gourmet Bagger, Bombastic Sandwiches). Maybe this one will finally stick?
Minion, Matt and I visited New York on Rye …
